RE­PORTERS, pho­tog­ra­phers, ed­i­tors and pro­duc­ers from the NT News and Sky News have been named as fi­nal­ists across eight cat­e­gories in the up­com­ing NT Me­dia Awards.

The NT News has been nom­i­nated in cat­e­gories in­clud­ing best scoop, best print news cov­er­age, fea­ture writ­ing, photography, on­line cov­er­age, sports jour­nal­ism and more.

Sky News Dar­win cor­re­spon­dent and NT Week­end opin­ion writer Matt Cun­ning­ham was nom­i­nated in two award cat­e­gories.

Crime and po­lit­i­cal re­port­ing dom­i­nated the awards short­list, re­leased yes­ter­day, in a year where com­mu­nity dis­sat­is­fac­tion at the state of the North­ern Ter­ri­tory’s jus­tice sys­tem fea­tured promi­nently on the news agenda.

NT News ed­i­tor Matt Wil­liams said: “The num­ber of re­porters and pho­tog­ra­phers short-listed speaks to the qual­ity of jour­nal­ism and photography our team pro­duces every day, reach­ing tens of thou­sands of Ter­ri­to­ri­ans both in print and on­line.”

The award win­ners will be an­nounced at a gala ball at Sky City Casino on Novem­ber 11.

The awards are judged by a panel of re­spected jour­nal­ists and prom­i­nent Ter­ri­to­ri­ans, and are spon­sored by the Dar­win Press Club, the MEAA and the Walk­ley Foun­da­tion.
